About Shell

As one of the world’s leading energy companies Shell plays a key role in helping to meet the world’s growing energy demand in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways. Shell has a history of over 50 years in Nigeria and the largest footprint of all the international oil and gas companies operating in the country.

Shell in Nigeria

Shell has been active in Nigeria since 1937.  Shell companies and investments have played a pioneering role in onshore, shallow and deep water oil exploration and production. Shell has also been at the forefront of gas development, producing and delivering gas to domestic consumers and export markets for over 40 years.

Shell’s Values

Shell’s core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people form the basis of the Shell General Business Principles.

Shell’s Business Activities in Nigeria

  • The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited (SPDC) is the largest Shell company in Nigeria and produced the country’s first commercial oil exports in 1958. SPDC is the operator of a joint venture (the SPDC JV) between the government-owned Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation – NNPC (55% share), SPDC (30%), Total E&P Nigeria Ltd (10%) and the ENI subsidiary Agip Oil Company Limited (5%). It is focused on onshore and shallow water oil and gas production in the Niger Delta.
  • Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCO) operates the Bonga field, Nigeria’s first deepwater oil discovery. The Bonga facility has the capacity to produce more than 200,000 barrels per day of oil and 150 MM standard cubic feet of gas per day.
  • Shell Nigeria Gas (SNG) is the only international oil and gas company to set up a gas distribution company in Nigeria to supply industry customers.
  • Nigeria LNG (NLNG) is a joint venture incorporated in 1989 to produce LNG and natural gas liquids for export. It was Nigeria’s first LNG project. Shell holds a 25.6% share, together with NNPC (49%), Total (15%) and ENI (10.4%).

Shell In Nigeria by Numbers

  • The SPDC JV’s assets include around 50 producing oil fields, a network of approximately 5,000 kilometers of oil and gas pipelines and flowlines, five gas plants and two major oil export terminals (Bonny and Forcados)
  • Bonga was Nigeria’s first oil and gas project in water depths over 1,000 metres. It increased Nigeria’s oil capacity by 10% when it began producing in 2005 and  has production capacity of 200,000 barrels of oil per day and 150 million standard cubic feet of gas per day
  • The NLNG plant at Bonny Island has six processing units (trains) with total processing capacity of 22 million tonnes a year of LNG and up to 5 million tonnes of natural gas liquids (LPG and condensate). NLNG accounts for approximately 7% of the world’s total LNG supply
